This Art Deco carnelian necklace is a marvelous example of the wonderful German design and construction so typical of the period. The sterling silver oval frame set with two carnelians and marcasite accents also holds/hides the tongue-in-groove clasp. The S-pattern chain is another characteristic of German Deco pieces. I have a pair of earrings and a bracelet, in the same style and materials, that coordinate well with this piece.
Faceted carnelian glass, onyx glass and marcasites are set in sterling silver panels in this 1930s Art Deco bracelet. It is an excellent example of high-quality German craftsmanship of the period. This bracelet, which has a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp with a safety catch, was part of my personal collection.
Three carnelian beads are connected by a delicate chain in these 1920s Art Deco drop earrings from Germany. The construction and materials are typical of German workmanship of the era. The original screw-backs were signed "STERLING GERMANY" and were converted to sterling posts for pierced ears by my expert jeweler. These earrings were part of my personal collection. I have two Art Deco carnelian bracelets, also from Germany, that coordinate well with this piece. You could also wear these earrings with Art Deco pieces that feature stones in addition to carnelian – scroll down to see a selection.
